TVO’s premiere of Green Heroes’ second season featured Daniel Lanois and other performers at the 2012 GreenBelt Harvest Picnic. Inspired by the annual gathering of great music and wholesome local food, CineFocus Canada and the Green Heroes team are running a contest this month and giving away a pair of tickets to this year’s Greenbelt Harvest Picnic on August 31, 2013 featuring Gordon Lightfoot, Emmy Lou Harris and many more amazing musicians.


The contest doesn’t require any petitioning and we most certainly are not asking you to dress up in a fancy costume parading around the streets as an environmental super hero (although this is always welcome)….

Your mission (should you decide to take it):

(1)  Join the Green Heroes Academy Facebook page via the Intro Mission at academy.greenheroes.tv, and if you already have you’re half-way there!

(2)  Enter the Food Mission: Biting into Change”. Once inside the mission select  ‘The Locavore Pledge” challenge and scroll down to find action #4 and take the required picture. Posting with the hashtag #GreenHeroesContest.

(3)  With the picture automatically posted in the Green Heroes Academy page on Facebook, share your picture-post to gain the most likes and retweets by August 26 to win two tickets to the Greenbelt Harvest Picnic on August 31st.

Good luck to all you Green Hero recruits and we wish you well on your journey of greenspiration. This year’s picnic will feature musical acts such as Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Emmylou Harris, Daniel Lanois, the Arkells and many more; along with the great people that grow Ontario’s food. The Harvest Picnic is a perfect way to lead into the Harvest season.

Best of luck,

The Green Heroes Team
